COURSES Fall 2022 / Contemporary Issues / BLACK WOMEN’S VOICES

Coordinators: Ilene Winkler, Barbara Barnes, Susannah Falk Lewis, Penelope Pi-Sunyer

This course discusses a wide range of works by Black women—novels, memoirs, essays, and art. In the past we have presented classes on bell hooks, Faith Ringgold, Fannie Lou Hamer, and Nikole Hannah-Jones.

We look forward to continuing our explorations of major themes in the history and lives of Black women while expanding to include music, ranging from classical to jazz and folk music.
